Battleship New Jersey

Since the Battleship New Jersey has come home to rest the New Jersey Elks have been raising monies to help with her restoration and upkeep. The Battleship personel have declared the Sunday after Easter "New Jersey Elks Day" on the ship. All New Jersey Elks are invited to visit on this day with free admission. Each year the New Jersey State Elks Association hold a ceramony to deliver a donation of the monies raised.

Unfortunately this year the weather was not on our side. With a chilling rain in the morning alot of folks stayed home. But the sun came out and it was a beautiful day aboard.

In the photo you will find our Exalted Ruler Greg Bodnar and Esteemed Leading Knight Rich Lavagno napping in the bunks after a long tour of the ship. Of course Greg took the top bunk! It's your turn next year Rich.
